NASHVILLE, Tenn.--()--Alana HealthCare announced today a new alliance with Cigna-HealthSpring, in which it will provide Complex Respiratory Disease Management Programs for those patients with complex respiratory disease states such as COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease).

“We are set to make this alliance with Cigna-HealthSpring perhaps the strongest in the country when it comes to helping patients with pulmonary disease and lowering the cost for both patients and our healthcare partners”

This partnership will allow Alana to utilize Evidence Based Programmatic Respiratory Care practices to help quantitate and address the overall disease burden and health care needs in this increasingly fragile population of Chronic Pulmonary Disease patients.

“We are set to make this alliance with Cigna-HealthSpring perhaps the strongest in the country when it comes to helping patients with pulmonary disease and lowering the cost for both patients and our healthcare partners,” said Jordan Schneider, Chief Operating Officer of Alana HealthCare. “Our goal is for everyone who needs care, whether their pulmonary issues are severe or more easily managed, to get the care they need and the cost to a reasonable rate.”

“Coordinated care is a central part of our core offering to our members, and working with Alana HealthCare continues to solidify that commitment,” said Dr. Robert Coxe of Cigna-HealthSpring. “This is an alliance that we are very pleased to be launching.”
